    How do you mark you film roll when Pushed/pulled

    Hey!

    So I've ran into a new problem the other day.
    The pen I used to mark my film roll dissolved in the Fridge. Luckily I could remember it was pushed to 800.

    How do you mark your film roll? Tried 3 different pens no and none would stick. Dnd the glue on post-its does not cope well with the cold either.

    Sharpie brand pens work very well and can be bought with a fine-point tip. I don't know if they are sold in Sweden.

    Hej,

    I use water proof pens that can write on metal, for example an over-head fin tip pen, works great both on metal canisters and on 120 paper.

    (I am Swedish living in Switzerland... )

    I just tend to write on the cap of my plastic film containers. I've found that my markers wont hold on the container itself, but the matte finish of the cap works well!

    I use the fine tip Sharpie brand pens as well. I bought a pack of several and put a couple in each bag. Never had them fade on me and they won't smear as long as you give them a short drying time.

    Everything gets marked N, N+, N- and so on, location(s) and date(s), as much info as I have room. Obviously there is more label real estate on 120 film.

    Or put a slip of paper in the container with the film.

    I use a Sharpie too, but for 35mm I fold the leader as well. One fold for a 1 stop push, twice for 2 stops.
